Artoria species? |
(ID as explained below)
female: perhaps 6 mm|
male: 4 mm
In a shallow open burrow but usually found wandering
May be too small to cause human illness but handle with caution
The identity of the spider shown on this page is uncertain. It is labelled here as a possible Artoria species because its appearance
closely resembles that of Artoria mckayi except for the white patch at the rear of the abdomen. This may just be a
characteristic of the male of A. mckayi or may indicate that it is a closely related species.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Several Australian lycosids, especially other Artoria species.
